They were once couple goals but now, Kelis and Nas are sworn enemies. 

Or at least that’s the way it seems. Married for about five years in the mid naughties, the pair divorced shortly after their child, Knight, was born.


In an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, Kelis revealed - amongst a lot more tea that includes alleged domestic violence and Nas’ narcissim - that they have had child support woes for years.

Kelis revealed that she only sometimes receives the R100k child support her ex is required to pay but Nas claims he can’t even afford that. TMZ says otherwise. 

The gossip site reports that the Oochie Wally rapper “makes about $175k(R2.2 million) per month from various sources (music, investments, etc.) and he has more than $8.3 million (R103 million) in cash in the bank.”

The site also claims “he pays $15k per month in rent.” A judge is yet to make a decision about a way forward regarding the child support.
